River Herring Monitoring - We need your Help!

‚ÄčIn order to properly manage the fishery, we need to know how many alewife and blueback herring are going through our fishways each season. With the help of volunteers, visual assessments have been conducted in previous years. Current monitoring protocol involves a video system installed at the top of certain fish ladders. Volunteers now have the opportunity to help count fish by watching video clips online. Helping out is easy and fun! Just click the link below to get started.
